Housing Production Plan Survey

The Town of Acton is in the process of updating its Housing Production Plan (HPP).

This document evaluates the housing needs of a community, ensuring a mix of housing types for different income levels, and helping to work towards a minimum of 10% of year-round housing stock being designated as affordable.

By establishing a production goal for affordable housing and demonstrating progress, Acton can maintain its “safe harbor” status, even if it has not met the 10% subsidized housing threshold. This status allows the town’s zoning board of appeals to deny 40B development if it does not meet local needs.

As part of this process, JM Goldson LLC is working with the Regional Housing Services Office to update the plan. To support this effort, the project team has developed a short survey, which will capture opinions on who needs housing, barriers to owning or renting in Acton, and the types of housing that will help meet the community’s needs over the next five years.

If you live in Acton, or have a connection with the town through work, family, or in other ways, we invite you to take the survey at the following link:

The survey will close on December 13, 2019 at 5PM.
